Thanks for all the replies.
I found out the speed rating should be a T and my tires are indeed a T so my tires are OK for speed and the tech was wrong.
But I see in a post above by Jeepman, that my load shold be 98 and my tires are 97. How important is the difference?
Not sure if I should start a new thread for this new defect, (Moderator, please advise?) but continuing on the issue of the tech voiding my warranty, one of the defects he checked was uneven thread wear .
I understand that some tire problems can damage the All Wheel Drive transmission.
Which level of defect becomes critical, whereby one should buy new tires?
Unfortunately I was unable to do tire rotation for a long time, and as a result I have these thread
depth discrepancies between the front and rear tires:
DRV FRONT 9/32
PASS FRONT 9/32
DRV REAR 7/32
PASS REAR 6/32
is the difference too great and causing damage?
Should I buy a set of 4 new tires at this point?
and is the difference such as to cause warranty voiding, if so for only the 6/32 tire or for all of them?
